X-ray tube assemblies must operate in extreme heat and in environments that can cause a 100-degree temperature differential within the system. Timken uses its application knowledge and technical capabilities in materials and precision machining to develop forward-integrated x-ray assemblies that enable CT scan machines to record images between heart beats.
Tubes for X-ray, CT and mammography scanning made with Timken ball bearings, integral assemblies and housings help capture images faster and more accurately.
- Solid lubrication system promotes better performance in extreme operating environments.
- High precision bearings are manufactured to thermal compensating designs to minimize noise and extend bearing life.
- All bearings in x-ray assemblies are made from high hardness tool steels with special coatings and unique designs.
